Performance Transmission Coolers

Performance engines create more heat. The more heat you create, the more cooling accessories will be needed. Your 1981 Chevrolet Malibu from the factory comes equipped with a transmission cooler, but this is intended for unmodified vehicles. Once you start tinkering away in your engine bay, the factory parts will not keep up. The same holds true for vehicles that are towing, and off-roading. The harder your vehicle is working, the hotter the transmission and the fluids will be. High heat can be extremely damaging to your transmission.

There are several styles of performance Transmission coolers. Tube and fin coolers, Plate & Fin coolers, and stacked coolers are what you can find in our catalog. Tube and fin transmission coolers work by a tube carrying the transmission fluid through the cooler. Aluminum fins are attached to the sides of the cooler, which help dissipate heat. The aluminum fins absorb the heat from the fluid and then the heat is cooled down by air flowing through the fins. Plate and Fin transmission coolers work similarly to tube and fin, the difference being the plates. Fluid is being forced through the plates, which allows much more contact with aluminum, therefor more heat dissipation. Lastly Stacked-plate transmission coolers are similar to plate and fin coolers however are designed for a higher flow. Stacked-plate coolers are ideal for heavy duty towing, and racing applications. Depending on your intended use of your 1981 Chevrolet Malibu the type of transmission cooler needed can vary. Sport Compact Warehouse is your premier source for transmission coolers.
